Hello, I am quite new to this. I want to play an Eldritch Knight for my second life with pm for healing. I am interested in going dex with a drow and using a kukri/shield. How viable does this build look? Your feedback would be greatly appreciated. :D

If you really want "DEX-based with kukri+shield," you should really be looking into Swashbucklers (http://ddowiki.com/page/Swashbuckler_enhancements). The DPS & defensive bonuses from SWF feats + Swashbuckling stance + Skirmisher enhs are too good to pass up.

As for the viability of your particular build, I'm not really sure what you're trying to accomplish here; or rather, what you think EK+PM brings to the table that a more conventional build won't be able to do better.

Thank you for the response. I will look into Swashbuckler but EK really interests me. I feel splashing PM gives a lot of survivability, especially since I don't want him to be a Warforged. I guess the simple answer for what I want from this build is a character who can survive same level elite quests with little hireling help and at the same time dish out enough damage to not be a bore. You can probably tell i am spoiled by my current life of pure PM. :)

With that many wiz lvls, it makes more sense to go INT-based for higher spell DCs; something like bard 3 / wiz 17 or bard 5 / wiz 15. Have a look at this thread (https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthread.php/443629-Any-thoughts-about-17wiz-3bard-or-15wiz-5bard-battle-mage).
